The clock is running!
The first candle on the advent wreath has been lit and we have eaten the first mince pies of the year (taken together with a glass of Madeira!). This year I've started with the Heston spiced ones...
Advent Sunday is also the day when I aim to finish making my Christmas cards and work out who will be receiving which card. In many cases they are made with the recipient in mind, but in others I find I have an image I really like and so make several variations and leave it to now to decide who will have which.
The other main activity for today has been to make sure that the remaining tasks are in the diary with the days I want to have achieved them.
Remember to make a wish for each mince pie you eat between now and Christmas Day!
